Fuck That Noise

One of these albums was so, uh, unpleasant that it spawned the title of the episode.  Fortunately, the rest of the show makes up for that album, but holy hell was that one bad.  Stop trying to guess which album I am referring to and just listen already.

Two Overdue Big-Name Reviews…

…and some other band.  I mean, we didn’t mean to overshadow Cognizance (which Brian says wrong almost every time), but it just kinda happened that way.  We have a fair amount to say about all three, so make sure you say your piece int he comments or on social media!

But Did You Hear About Tool??

Yes, we acknowledge Tool did a thing right before we record this show.  Way more importantly, though, we have three new, far more relevant releases to discuss, plus a real ripper of a Sideshow ABCs pick!

We Don’t Care

The title here is slightly hyperbolic, but not by much.  This week’s review choices struggled a bit to keep our attention.  Some were better than others, and we certainly had bunch to talk about, so I guess it was all fine in the end.
